American Table Grapes

Vitis labrusca American bunch grape / Northern Fox gape
These grapes are descendents of the Native American grapes. I have found them delicious. They grow very well here in the hills, are hardy, drought torrent & most importantly fungus free.
I grow several varieties; they are seedless except for Kyoho. As well as fresh eating they dry well & I’ve made jelly & rotegrutze.
GLENORA Medium sized blue seedless .early maturing. My favorite.

HIMROD White seedless. Has a spicy flavour. Maturing February. Also a favorite.

CANADICE Red seedless with large compact bunches. Matures February.
VENUS Black seedless. Matures February
KYOHO Large Black,seeds, late season.
